This acquisition will strengthen Verder’s hygienic position in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage market, offering a full portfolio of high end products in the most important economies worldwide.

Andries Verder, CEO of the Verder Group, says the Group is very excited to have JEC join the Verder family of companies. ‘We feel that the integration of JEC into the Verder sales and distribution organisation worldwide, will enable JEC to continue its high growth trajectory. The acquisition of JEC with their high quality rotary lobe, circumferential piston and twin-screw pumps will also facilitate a stronger position for Verder in the Asian market and offers great opportunities in the important Korean market.’

Founded in 1990, JEC Ltd. has shown continuous growth due to its innovation in the production of high quality pumps for the food, pharmaceutical and other hygienic markets, nowadays being a leading Asian pump manufacturer. JEC Ltd, the market leader in Korea, has an extensive distribution network worldwide. Director James Song will stay involved in the management of JEC Ltd.

Darryl Macdougall, managing director, Verder Pumps South Africa, says: ‘We are very excited by this global acquisition and what it means for our operations and offering to clients on the African continent. Africa currently has one of the fastest growing consumer markets in the world and linked to this, consumables – particularly food and beverage and pharmacare – are some of the fastest growing industries on the continent too. However, manufacturers in these industries are some of the most highly regulated – and penalised – businesses globally, as impeccable standards of process and product quality and safety must be maintained to protect consumers and end-users. To this end, the global acquisition of JEC Ltd enables us to provide our clients with access to further options of high quality and niche market pump solutions that will perform at optimum production levels while contributing to meeting all hygienic requirements.’

The Verder Group prides itself on understanding client and market needs and meeting these needs by providing a one-stop offering of advanced, cost-effective, efficient and long-lasting solutions for every industrial application.

Founded by André Verder in 1959 as a trading company of innovative products. The Group has remained under family management and is active with own sales offices in 27 countries and several manufacturing sites. The two divisions Verder Liquids (industrial pumps) and Verder Scientific (laboratory equipment) have kept an equal growth pace over the years.
